Looking for cheap car hire in Belfast? We have all the tricks of the trade and you can make genuine savings when renting a car in Belfast. Quality doesn’t drop, just the prices! Also, hiring a car and driving across Northern Ireland is the best way to discover the magnificent scenery and breathtaking landscape.
Always organise your car hire in advance – this is the most common cheap car rental tip. It will save you money and it will also save you time when you get to your destination. Try to organise your car hire several months (at least 3 months) in advance. At peak times, and during the summer, availability is more limited, and it’s much more expensive to hire a car at the last minute.
If you’re flying to Belfast collect your hire car at the airport – Belfast International Airport or George Best Airport. This will save you the time, money and hassle of transferring to another car rental pickup point.
Try to plan in advance and if your travel dates are more flexible you can avail of special offers and discounts. Another cheap car hire tip is that it’s probably more economical to book a week’s car hire than to opt for a few days car rental.
It’s also worth noting that most car hire companies work on a 24 hour basis. For example if you arrive in Belfast and collect your hire car at 11am and drop it off at 11am on day 2 this is considered as one day’s car rental. If you return your car hire at 3pm on the second day you’ll be charged for another day.
If you go to pick up your car rental after the car hire office/desk is closed you’ll more than likely have to pay an additional fee for an ”out of hours’ service. It may save you money if you wait until the following morning to collect your car hire.
Know what you need and which car is the best for you – smaller is cheaper! Consider how many of you are travelling and what size car you need.
Another way to ensure you get cheap Ireland car hire is to return your car to the same location as the pick up. Opting for a different car hire drop off point will increase your costs, so try to avoid one-way car hire.
